Glengowan Goldens starts with Bree (Bargello's Bree of Glengowan, OD), the foundation bitch. We obtained her from Barbara Tinker (Bargello Goldens) in 1996. "OD" refers to the title, GRCA Oustanding Dam, awarded to bitches whose produce have excelled in show and/or performance venues.

Qualifying produce for Bree's OD were Pepper (Ch. Glengowan's Sugar and Spice), Cagney (
Ch. Glengowan Juscoz All Spiced Up CDX JH NA NAJ VCX), and Kelly (Ch. Glengowan's American Princess). Cagney is owned by Lynda and Tim Williams. Pepper owns us and Kelly now lives with Annette Tyson.

Pepper has been active recently also, earning a Judge's Award of Merit at the Golden Retriever Club of America National  Specialty in October 2009 and Best Veteran at the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro Golden Retriever Club on March 26, 2010.  She has had litters  with Tyler (
Am. CH. Smithaven's Amber Brew BISS AX OAJ NAC NGC TN-N) and with Hobo (BIS BISS Am. Ch. Summits MR Bojangles OS SDHF),and with Dylan (Ch. Seeshaw Dylan's Evening Blaze SH WCX OS).  From the Tyler litter, Glengowan has Taylor and Scotty . From the Hobo litter, we have Owen  and Ash. One of the boys from that litter, Romeo, is a Canadian Champion and was the 2008 #2 Golden in Canada, owned by Judy Kashuba and co-owned by me. From a later Dylan - Pepper litter we have kept a girl, Glengowan's C-quel (S'more), full sister to Glengowan's Great Balls of Fire (Jerry Lee). S'More has had an exceptional puppy career, with four reserve winners' bitch placements. She  won best puppy every time that competition was offered and usually earned puppy group placements.

Pepper too has qualified for her OD, the qualifying produce being Owen, Scotty, and Taylor.
